All much due respect to Mary and PP&M

Too much of nothing
Can make a man ill at ease.
One man's temper rises
Where another man's temper might freeze.
Now its that day of confession
And we cannot mock a soul.
Oh, when there's too much of nothing,
No one has control.

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Give her all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

Well there's too much of nothing
Can cause a man to weep.
He can walk the streets and like most and boast
Of what he's like to keep.
But it's all been done before,
It's all been written in the book,
And when there's too much of nothing,
Nobody should look.

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Give her all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

Now too much of nothing
Can make a man a liar,
It can cause some men to sleep on nails
It can cause others to eat fire.
Everybody's doin' somethin',
I heard it in a dream,
But when there's too much of nothing,
It just makes a fella mean.

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Send them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

Please note I meant no disrespect to Mary Travers, or your thread Stealz. Listening to the version on your link, a memory was struck and when the connection was made I got trigger happy.

Peter, Paul and Mary were a wonderful component in the soundtrack of my youth, and a voice for justice and freedom that rang forth throughout their long career.

None taken, Mr. Russ.

My only assumption was that the song was of some sort of importance to you. I'm happy to have been able to help turn the wheels and take you back to a place....

It was/is my favorite cover of theirs. I remember first being turned on to PP&M (with special mention of the song above) by an old ceramics professor of mine who used to take in free PP&M "concerts" on the grassy clearing of Dunn Meadow on the campus Indiana University in the mid 60's.
